On September 8, 2016, the Consumer Bureau, together with our partners at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, took an enforcement action against Wells Fargo Bank. Our investigations found that, in order to meet sales goals and collect financial bonuses for themselves, employees of the bank created unauthorized deposit and credit card accounts, enrolled consumers in online banking services, and ordered debit cards for consumers, all without their consent or even their knowledge.

Written Testimony of CFPB Director Richard Cordray Before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is the nation’s first federal agency with the sole focus of protecting consumers in the financial marketplace. Financial products like mortgages, credit cards, and student loans involve some of the most important financial transactions in people’s lives. In the Dodd-Frank Act, Congress created the Bureau to stand on the side of consumers and ensure they are treated fairly in the consumer financial marketplace. Since we opened our doors, we have been focused on making consumer financial markets work better for the American people, the honest businesses that serve them, and the economy as a whole.
